Continuing the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, Nas releases the video for the classic album cut, "Represent" today. Nas turned to contest winner, Brian Katz, along with Mass Appeal's Jason Goldwatch to direct the video, as they based the plot on the soundtrack for the 1924 film, The Thief of Bagdad, which DJ Premier sampled on the song.
